Please do not view a film with a storyline like this, and give some pretentious review on it. It's a killer pirate horror/ comedy, and judged as a killer pirate horror/comedy it's an excellent film. Rhett Giles is hilarious as Jolly Roger, and is very different from his other serious toned Asylum roles like Frankenstein Reborn. The death scenes here are well staged, and Jolly Roger doesn't mess around, racking up a very large body count, mostly by decapitation. You also have plenty of sexy skin scenes, including the drop dead hilarious strip club scene. " Is That A Musket In Your Pocket, or Are You Just Happy To See Me?" is the type of gut busting dialog you can expect. The basic story is actually pretty good here, and with the success of historical period horror films like the excellent Straight Into Darkness, somebody should try to make a serious pirate horror film. If you enjoy tongue in cheek horror like Jack Frost, Santa's Slay, or The Leprechaun series, I can pretty much guarantee you'll enjoy this. Asylum should definitely do a sequel, as this is one of there better efforts.
